Cupcake Stand card (CC Designs images)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I haven't created a card like this for quite some time, I thought I'd lost my mojo but this has helped to make me feel better as I think it turned out quite cute. I was inspired by another crafter (Katie K) who made an icecream stand card and she also gave a tutorial on her post so I will give you the link in case you'd like to try it - HERE. I actually made mine a little larger than she did. I printed out these sweet little girls and also extra cupcakes so I could add them to the table. These are little girls from CC Designs (store), originally digital, they don't sell digital anymore but you can get the sitting fairy in rubber form - HERE (direct link to fairy image).

I used toadstools and grass from my company, Flourish with a Bling and made my own flowers from old punches I have. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create - Totally technical - cupcake stand shaped card
Artistic Inspirations - anything goes
As you like it - fave hair colour combo - Copic markers E29-27-25-23-21, I use these more often than any other colours, they blend well (except one needs a new tip so is giving me a bit of grief at the moment). I love how E29 is so dark yet you can get light highlights of E21.

  1. What an absolutely delightful card! This is a unique design - I have never seen this shape & cut before & I appreciate the link to the very helpful tutorial. For me, the very first thing that grabbed my attention was your coloring of their hair! OMy Lucy, you have some serious skills with hair! I blew up your images and investigated your pen strokes and shading - very impressive indeed - beautifully done! Thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
